Netflix was set on funding the new Nancy Meyers, but has since altered its mind. The streaming company has opted not to proceed with what was to be the most costly romantic comedy in history, starring Penélope Cruz and Scarlett Johansson.
Well, not in the end
Netflix astonished everyone by approving Nancy Meyers’ new idea, a romantic comedy that would cost her $150 million. Although the study was able to reduce the figure to 130 million, it was still significantly above a genre that typically deals with medium expenditures.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Netflix has finally backed down and shelved the project due to a budget disagreement. ‘Paris Paramount’ was the working title.
Nancy Meyers, an experienced director of films of similar kind such as ‘Father of the Bride,’ ‘You to London and I to California,’ or ‘The Intern,’ her most recent movie released eight years ago, was set to write and direct the picture. years.
The cast, which had already confirmed such well-known personalities as Penélope Cruz, Owen Wilson, Scarlett Johansson, and Michael Fassbender as headliners, would undoubtedly receive a major portion of the cash for this ambitious idea.
A project that was intended to cost more than 120 million dollars for what is presently the highest-grossing romantic comedy in history (‘How do you know if…?’, which bombed at the box office). Until the film receives additional money, we’re left wondering how this story about a director and a producer who had a relationship in the past and are now obliged to collaborate again would have played out.
